Health and Wellness
A third of West Africa’s population are between the age of 10–24. These youth are growing up in an environment plagued by poverty, limited educational opportunities, health threatening diseases, and weak social control. Serving through ILF’s holistic ministry, we believe that the individuals can focus on improving their community only when the needs of their health and wellness are met.
